    Have Your Say - Ultimate Race Calendar.jpg
    Have Your Say is here again - Tell us what your all time ultimate F1 calendar would look like...

    This one is a little bit different than usual in that I'm going to set some criteria for your response. What I would like to see in the comments is your ultimate F1 calendar containing between 16 and 22 tracks and using only current versions of the circuit, not historic variants such as the original Hockenheim for example... oh and try and give some reasoning behind the choices, not just a simple list.. :)

    Ok then folks, have some fun!

    Please note - if this is popular then I'll do another using both historic and modern layouts. Needing a minimum 100 comments to be considered successful...

    Damn, you've not made this easy :D So any track can be used so long as it is the current version of the track? e.g. we could use Brands Hatch if we wanted?

    Sao Paulo
    Magny Cours
    Imola
    Montmeló
    Nurburgring GP (GT last chicane)
    Monaco
    Austin
    Istambul Park
    Monza
    Silverstone (Maybe the Bridge layout)
    Montreal
    Jarama or Jerez
    Suzuka
    Spa Francorchamps
    Melbourne, or Adelaide
    Hockenheimring
    Hermanos Rodríguez (with the Peraltada, but but adding a small chicane before that corner).

    The key. Quality before quantity. And with minus races, it implies reduction of costs.

    0. Tests: First week Jerez, second Catalunya.
    1. Interlagos - For me, just perfect season opener.
    2. Buenos Aires Lake Layout - Very high speed, classic circuit
    3. Circuito Hermanos Rodriguez - I don't know why but I quite like this circuit.
    4. Indianapolis - Bring it freaking back and delete COTA from calendar.
    5. Montreal - I forgot about this one, added in edit. Very fun track with historical value and can produce a lot of exciting races.
    6. Istambul Park - Very nice, flowing circuit with a lot of fun races in past.
    7. Jarama (GP of Spain) - I love this classic circuit and it will be a lot better option than Catalunya.
    8. Mugello (GP of San Marino) - Very flowy and fun track witch can produce very exciting MotoGP races so why not F1?
    9. Monaco - Classic must be.
    10. Paul Ricard Layout 1A - Very fun track to drive and race with full Mistral Straight and fastest version of first 2 S turns.
    11. Donington Park - For me new Silverstone is just really bad and just why not?
    12. Nurburgring Nordschleife - Real test of drivers and engineers and just a great, classic circuit.
    13. Spielberg Red Bull Ring - It produced some nice races and this place is just beautiful.
    14. Hungaroring - Flowy and twisty, pretty fun track.
    15. Spa - Must be
    16. Motorland Aragon (GP of Europe) - I just like this track.
    17. Monza (GP of Italy) - Last round in Europe and just one of must be circuits.
    18. Sakhir (Bahrain) - I pretty like this track and it can produce a lot of fun races.
    19. Sepang - Liberty, please, bring it back ;_;
    20. Suzuka - Must be
    21. Adelaide - Perfect season ending on one of the classic circuits, a bit short but just why not?

    Actual Tracks Staying in the Lineup (10 Races):
    Suzuka (GP of Japan)
    - Just a damn good couse with great history.
    Spa (GP of Europe) - The same, one of the most Iconic Courses existing.
    Hermanos Rodriguez (GP of Mexico) - I like the Track layout and the Baseballstadium makes it something unique
    Silverstone (GP of GB) - Not one of my favourite layouts but pure Motorsport History. The races are thrilling and the weather a big factor. Has to stay.
    Nürburgrin GP (GP of Germany) - As the Nordschleife isn´t possible for F1, the GP course is the next best thing.
    Monza (GP of Italy) - The fastest GP in the year, wasn`t exciting in the last years but with Mercedes Domination ending it would be a fantastic race.
    Baku (GP of Azerbaijan) - It`s one of the "new" GPs but the races were thrilling and the Layout unforgiving. In my oppinion just a great Track.
    Monaco (GP of Monaco) - Not a question at all, everything F1 is (or was) in just one race.
    Interlagos (GP of Brazil) - Great track, enthusiastic Motorsportfans.
    Singapur (GP of Asia) - Really good Layout and the Nightrace is something special.

    "Comeback" Tracks (3 Races):
    Zandvoort (GP of the Netherlands)
    - Location and Track are somethin unique. The Sand and the wind qould be a challenge for driver and Teams. Also in the Netherlands the Verstappen Hype is still rollling.
    Imola (GP of Sam Marino) - The Layout is really great, strong (F1) history. Would love to see it back.
    Indianapolis (GP of the USA) - The most Iconic Racetrack in the USA.

    The Newcomer Tracks (5Races):
    Sonoma (GP of North America)
    - Great Track, 2nd Race in the US, I like the Layout.
    Portimao (GP of Portugal) - I simply like the layout, the last cormer before start/finish is a real fast one with great overtaking potential in the following.
    Bathurts (GP of Australia) - Why Melbourne or Adelaide if the same Country has something like Bathurts? Would be one of the most loved F1 GP in no time.
    Macau (GP of China) - Monaco is hard, Macau is insane - The F1 simply has to race here.
    Le Mans Bugatti Circuit (GP of France) - F1 would drive in Le Mans!

    That would be 18 Races and I thing thats enough for a Season. Also in F1 you could win something like the "little-triple-crown" with Wins in Monaco, Indy and Le Mans :D
    I think this is a good and well balanced pool of Tracks with every historical important Track in it. But lets be real: this shedule is missing all the shiny new "key markets" and would never happen.

    I don't know what mine would be but all I do know is Monaco would be no where near it. It's an awful circuit that is only there for it's history. The cars can barely race around there now
